Although climate change poses a global threat that can only be tackled through urgent collective and concerted action, a large section of Kenya’s population are still not aware of its direct impact to their lives and how to respond to the threat. Worse still, the understanding of and action on climate change among the youth in Kenya is still very low, yet they play a significant role in any attempt to bring change either at the community or national levels.
